    Ash body, Mighty Mite neck, staggered tuners, Duncan Broadcaster pickup, ashtray bridge. Wired "50's Les Paul Jr" this one fought me tooth and nail the whole build. Not proud of some of the work, but its paid off. Hands down the best playing, and sounding "Tele" or "Esquire" I own or have built. Just don't look at it (not going to show all the mistakes) I am changing a bunch of tooling to fix the problems I had. This is my fourth body, and far from my last (3 more bodies setting on my bench now)

    Looks good from here. It's how it plays that counts anyway. Enjoy!

    I have a couple bodies in the works...one of which will become my "first" Esquire (technically I had a crappy parts caster Esquire that I pillaged the neck and most of the hardware from, but it was a too thin body with a bad neck joint and noisy wiring (someone else's build, obviously). It's getting an overwound Cavalier Nocaster Lion and a switchless wiring setup. It has its share of mistakes too, but...se la vie!

    93996AFD-7970-4279-96EA-F4625C9DF046.jpeg That’s what I did with this one. 50’s wiring, Cavalier Huge lion and 500k pots. Clean it twangs & dirty it roars.

    Thanks everyone. This is slowly pushing my P90 Les Paul out as my number one guitar!
